Drones for power sector: Made in Finland for India

Finland’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) solutions provider, Sharper Shape, will provide aerial solutions for the power transmission sector in partnership with Sterlite Grid Ventures. Sterlite Grid is India’s largest private developer of independent transmission systems.

Sterlite Grid said the alliance would provide business solutions to transmission line operators and help them reduce delivery time of projects, and increase the uptime of power systems. The agreement was signed between the companies in the presence of the Prime Minister of Finland, Juha Sipilä, in Mumbai. Sipilä attended the ‘Make in India’ conference in the city.

Sterlite Grid’s role in this alliance would involve setting up operations in India, including all customer-facing activities. Sharper Shape would offer software solutions, technical know-how and the capabilities required to fulfil the scope of the work.
